Here Are 17 Pictures From Inside The “PEACEFUL” Protests On Inauguration Day

As Donald J. Trump was sworn in on the steps of the U.S. Capitol as the 45th President, hundreds of masked protesters went on a rampage throughout downtown Washington, D.C.

Police in riot gear attempted to maintain order with pepper spray and concussion “Flashbang” grenades whilst being attacked with bricks that were pulled from the sidewalk.

The protesters torched private cars, attacked Trump supporters, and lit fires in the street. These photos taken inside of the protest show the chaos that erupted in the streets of the nation’s capitol.
